Seasons in the Sun

I was on the runway, I was gonna make it.
I was gonna get too say goodbye,
Then Dennis called......He was gone.


Each day I begin by doing a weighted walk through the cemetery.
My way of cheating death each day.

I would like to make a toast to lying,
 cheating, stealing, & drinking.

If you are gonna lie, lie for a friend.

If your going to steal, steal a heart.

If your going to cheat, cheat death itself,
And if your going to drink, drink with me my friend.


Death is lifes' way of telling you your fired.
Three days after you die your hair and fingernails keep growing
 but the phone calls and texts taper off.

Death doesn't come to the living soul nor does age to the loving heart.
I don't know who said that but it's pretty damn romantic.



I'm binge watching 'Orange is the New Black' season two,
the lead character gets a furlough to see her dying grandma
only to find that the grandma is already dead. 

I'm thinking all of us are equally damaged
we cling on to faulty beliefs, or are guided by friends
who are equally damaged.

I'm a wordsmith, 
I've been to College, and I'm attending the school of life.

Through that I have come to the realization that
Myths and Fairy tales are designed to teach a lesson.

Unfortunately the modern versions have been 'scrubbed clean' for 
our modern consumption. A society that supports the notion of
trophies for all participants in childrens' sports,
  needs to believe in happy endings.

The 'real' stories are usually quite disturbing.
Take the brothers Grimm for example.

Sleeping beauty

A King hunting in the woods stumbles upon sleeping beauty and rapes her
then brings her home to one of his estates.
 she later bears two children who the Kings wife eats.



Little Red Riding Hood

Arrives at grandmas' house and eats her, takes her clothes off
then slips into bed naked where she loses her virginity to the wolf.
A French idiom for a girl having lost her virginity was
'elle avoit yu'      She has seen the wolf.

Cinderella

Cinderellas' sisters cut off parts of their feet to fit in the glass slippers.
Later their eyes are pecked out by Doves.

Rapunzel

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.
In the Grimm version of this story she does, a little too often.

Not with the prince though, with random beggars and thieves.
She winds up pregnant,
 innocently she remarks to her 'jailer witch'that her clothes are too tight.
 The witch cuts off her hair and transports her away.



We obviously live in a world of monsters and ghosts and things
 that want to steal your heart, it's not unreasonable to still have hope.
That's why Disney protects us by 'scrubbing' our stories for us.
So we can hold onto our belief  in  Angels, & Dreams 

The  'the goddess' was a myth.
Tinkerbell is now a truck stop hooker and
 Rapunzels' hair extensions are on the night stand of
a seedy roadside motel.......... not a castle.




Expectation is the root of all heartache.
-William Shakespeare-

The foundation we search for in Love, Life and Fitness is 
facilitated by our devotion to self, in the Dojo and the Gym.

We don't want to surrender  ourselves to the problem
rather than the solution.

Womens' intuition is a good signpost for decision making,
but it usually bumps up against mans' logic.

We have to put ego aside and listen.

The I-pod, gym, and Dojo can become an escape rather than a tool

if we are not careful to give significance to all aspects of our lives,


Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams
than the imagination when awake ?
-Leonardo Da Vinci-

The Treachery of the Ambiguous

The complexity and 'truth'  of human contact 
is being replaced with simple, scalable equations,

We maintain hundreds, even thousands more friends
than any human in history, 
at the cost of complexity and depth.

Every minute spent online is 'face-to face' time lost.

The best of characters are attractive and repulsive at the same time.
I piss alot of people off with my stories because they read themselves into them.

One of the greatest hazards in life is to risk nothing at all.
Living well is to risk dying.
Loving well is to risk rejection.
Being a wordsmith is to risk being 'unfriended & blocked'

All are obstacles you encounter when you take your eyes off  your goal.


Facing and overcoming obstacles and fears
 in the Dojo and the gym gives us the courage 
to face any challenge we'll face in life and love.

Beware the Devil was once an Angel.
He doesn't come to you with a red face and horns, 
he comes to you disguised as everything you ever wanted.


Character is developed through actions.
Positive and negative energy both give off a vibe.
Trust 'the vibe', energy rarely lies.
That 'stomach thing is your 'spider sense'
Trust It !!

Let go, let go of how you thought life should be,
and embrace the life that's trying to break through.

It is not who I am underneath,
 but what I do that defines me.
-Bruce Wayne-
One last thing,......They're just words.

When 3 people have sex it's called a threesome
When two people have sex it's called a twosome
Why do people call me handsome  ??

A Douche bags day in court

I think its funny that people who treat you like shit
 get offended when you finally do the same to them.


Former Lee police chief Joe Buffis on Wednesday denied charges of extortion, 
money laundering and wire / mail fraud in U.S. District court in Massachusetts.
This guy stole over $52,000. from a children's Christmas Toy Fund !!!!


Why do I care what happens to this DOUCHE BAG ??

This guy made my life a living hell when I was growing up .
He put in 'the system' that I was 'armed and dangerous'.

I would get randomly pulled over 'cuffed and stuffed' at gunpoint,
I would be made to wait in a cruiser while my car was searched.

Nothing was ever found - no charges were ever filed,
until a 'bitch' named karma reached out and 'cuffed and stuffed' him !


Be Good, Do Good !
 When a birds alive it eats ants,
when it dies ants eat the bird.

Time and circumstances can change at anytime
Don't devalue anyone in life.

You may be powerful today, but time is more powerful than you.

One tree can make a million matchsticks.
One matchstick can burn a forest of a million trees.


At the karma cafe' you'll be served what you deserve.
Karma has no deadline and she's a bitch.

It's a lie to say you have to let go of the past.
Nobody can let go of memories.

Each tear is an unforgettable memory.
Each smile is an undeniable mark.
Each heartbreak is an un-erasable scar.

There is no letting go, only moving on !!

For the innocent, the past may hold a reward. but for the treacherous
it's only a matter of time before time delivers what they truly deserve.
